Open Forum: Obama would bring change for the better

I would like to encourage my fellow Prince George’s County residents to vote Barack Obama on Feb. 12 as the Democratic nominee. America is at a crossroads with the economy, health care and world respect. We need a leader who can build a coalition to make effective change. If the Democratic Party expects to win the White House in November then Obama must be at the top of the ticket.

Divisive politics will not work. You can win every blue state, but lose the election. Obama is getting the Democrat, Republican and Independent support in those states. He has endorsements from the Kansas governor and the Arizona governor.

So, I ask my fellow Prince George’s County residents, ‘‘If not Barack then who? If not now, then when? Can we waste another four or more years waiting for a change to come?”
